Mr. Annan said in a statement issued today by his spokesman in New York that he was pleased to learn that the memorandum was a comprehensive agreement, covering a wide array of issues ranging from the governing of Aceh and security arrangements to human rights issues. He also commended former Finnish President Martti Ahtisaari for the mediation role that he played throughout the negotiation process. “He sincerely hopes that the memorandum will be implemented in full, so that a lasting peace can prevail in Aceh after nearly 30 years of conflict there. The people in Aceh deserve a peaceful future,” the statement said. Reiterating his call for both parties to demonstrate continued resolve and commitment, Mr. Annan said he was encouraged to learn that monitors from the European Union (EU) and a number of Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries were being deployed as of today to Aceh as a part of the Aceh Monitoring Mission. The MoU signing follows a preliminary peace agreement reached between the two parties in mid-July. read more

first_imgSpecialist retailers will inevitably try and tempt you into a PS4 or Xbox One purchase next month by offering decent trade in values for your old consoles. But they aren’t the only ones trying to tempt a trade. Alienware has decided to get in on the action, only they want you to buy a new PC instead of a next-gen console.With no backwards compatibility on PS4 and Xbox One, it seems likely many more gamers will choose to hang on to their current gen machines. But Alienware’s proposition is a tempting one if you see your gaming future being on a PC. Deciding to trade in a PS3, Xbox 360, or even a Wii will net you $200 off a new Alienware PC right now. You can also choose to trade a desktop PC or laptop if you wish.The console needs to be shipped to Alienware “in the condition you claim” and a proof-of-purchase submitted for the Alienware PC/laptop you buy. In return, you will get the agreed trade-in amount as cash via a bank transfer. When you consider a new PS3 is $275, an Xbox 360 is $250, and a Wii is $150, Alienware is offering excellent trade in prices.To take part in the trade-in program, or just to see how much your hardware is worth, visit the Alienware Trade-In Program page. Note that any console you do trade has to be in working order. State it’s broken and Alienware will suggest recycling it instead.last_img read more

5 places with free holiday meals in Clark County

September 19, 2019 | shgcmyqk | No Comments

first_imgThere’s no reason to go hungry or be alone on Thanksgiving, as several groups in Clark County host free meals open to anyone and everyone. Here are five places where you can get a free Thanksgiving meal around town.1) St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, 8701 N.E. 119th St., Vancouver.Last year, Ohana Farms Northwest served more than 300 people at St. John the Evangelist and ran out of food by mid-afternoon. Organizer Carolyn Carpio hopes to serve even more people this year. The meal takes place between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day at the church. While no family — no matter how big — will be turned away, people are asked to call 360-798-7622 to reserve a spot. Transportation is provided if needed, though Carpio could use some help providing transportation for more people.Those who attend will also have the opportunity to get a haircut, take home nonperishable food and winter clothes, and participate in a cake walk.2) WareHouse ’23, 100 Columbia St., Vancouver.Probably the most well-known free Thanksgiving meal was hosted for years by state Court of Appeals Judge Rich Melnick and Chuck Chronis at Chronis’ restaurant. That restaurant is long gone, but the meal tradition continues at WareHouse ’23 with the help of its owner, Mark Matthias. Get grub between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the waterfront restaurant, which will also host a free meal at the same time on Christmas Day. Call 360-750-7256 for more information.3) Smirna Christian Church, 8205 N.E. Fourth Plain Blvd., Vancouver.For years, Donnie Vercher hosted a Thanksgiving meal in the parking lot behind his restaurant, Daddy D’s Southern Style BBQ in central Vancouver. This year, Vercher said he’s been blessed with a facility to hold the event, Smirna Christian Church just down the road, where he expects to feed 1,000 people.last_img read more

Boehner to Obama No debt hike without concessions

September 16, 2019 | shgcmyqk | No Comments

first_imgWASHINGTON — The United States moved closer to the possibility of the first-ever default on the government’s debt Sunday as Speaker John Boehner adamantly ruled out a House vote on a straightforward bill to boost the borrowing authority without concessions from President Barack Obama.With no resolution in sight, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew warned that Congress is “playing with fire” as he called on lawmakers to quickly pass legislation re-opening the government and a measure increasing the nation’s $16.7 trillion debt limit.The government shutdown precipitated by the budget brinkmanship entered its sixth day with hundreds of thousands of federal employees furloughed, national parks closed and an array of government services on hold.Lew said Obama has not changed his opposition to coupling a bill to re-open the government and raise the borrowing authority with Republican demands for changes in the 3-year-old health care law and spending cuts.Boehner insisted that Obama must negotiate if the president wants to end the shutdown and avert a default that could trigger a financial crisis and recession that would echo the events of 2008 or worse. The 2008 financial crisis pushed the country into the worst recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s.last_img read more

first_img $155 at Google Express Tags The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. 7 0 Healthy eating,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend.

Amanda Capritto The maker of the Beyond Burger thinks there’s plenty of demand for more plant-based burgers. Beyond Meat released its quarterly earnings on Thursday showing a 215% increase in net revenue, and the company expects to double its sales in 2019 compared with last year. The numbers come a little over a month after Beyond Meat held its initial public offering on May 2. “We are very pleased with our successful IPO during the month of May and our strong first quarter financial results that we believe demonstrate mainstream consumers’ desire for plant-based meat products in the United States and internationally,” Ethan Brown, Beyond Meat’s president and CEO, said in a press release Thursday.  The meat replacement company’s Beyond Burger is available at supermarkets across the US and Amazon. It’s also available for order at Carl’s Jr, TGI Fridays and Del Taco. Starting in June, smart-oven maker Tovala began offering Beyond Meat as part of its meal kits. Beyond Meat, however, isn’t the only such maker in town. Impossible Foods is another plant-based meat company that’s already teamed up with Burger King to make the Impossible Whopper and Little Caesars to create Impossible Sausage for pizzas.  Rylo Sprint $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving.

Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Trump announces hes being investigated

September 3, 2019 | shgcmyqk | No Comments

first_imgDonald Trump.File PhotoUS president Donald Trump announced he is under investigation and appeared to attack a senior Department of Justice official Friday, as the federal investigation consuming his administration gathered pace.As Bob Mueller, the special investigator now heading the FBI’s probe into allegations of Russian election meddling, filled out his legal team and prepared to begin interviews, Trump erupted furiously for a second consecutive day.“I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt” he tweeted from the White House shortly before leaving for Miami.Trump’s digital volley appeared to be trained at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who recommended the firing last month of James Comey-an almost unprecedented move that could yet imperil Trump’s presidency.A source on Trump’s legal team claimed the president was referring to a Washington Post story “from the other night” rather than confirming he is being investigated.The Washington Post was one of several media that revealed this week that Trump himself is being investigated on allegations of obstructing justice.Inside the White House, a sense of foreboding has taken hold on even the most junior staff and up to the Oval Office, as news emerged that Vice President Mike Pence has hired a high-powered outside counsel to represent him.An aide on Thursday said Pence had hired Richard Cullen who litigated the 1980s Iran-Contra scandal, the Watergate affair and the 2000 vote recount in Florida.The vice-president, who was also in Miami, described his move to hire an outside lawyer as “very routine.”Special counsel Mueller-a respected former FBI director-was also bringing in legal firepower to investigate whether there was collusion between Trump’s team and Russia to fix the 2016 election or an attempted cover-up.Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller told AFP he now has “13 attorneys on board, with several more in the pipeline.”‘Witch hunt’ -That news appears to have infuriated the president, who also lashed out at the media on a day that aides hoped would be focused on his decision to undo some of Barack Obama’s detente with Cuba.“After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my ‘collusion with the Russians,’ nobody has been able to show any proof. Sad!” Trump tweeted.“The Fake News Media hates when I use what has turned out to be my very powerful Social Media – over 100 million people! I can go around them.”On Thursday Trump derided a “witch hunt” against him, led by some “very bad” people.Trump’s young presidency has been battered by allegations-under investigation both by Congress and the FBI-that Russia interfered to sway the 2016 election in his favor, in possible collusion with Trump’s campaign team.The president has long vehemently denied any collusion with Moscow.The new allegations against Trump center on his own admission that he fired Comey because of the Russia investigation, and suggestions he asked several top intelligence officials for their help altering the inquiry’s direction.The widened Russia probe could have far-reaching repercussions for Trump’s presidency, transforming his closest aides into witnesses and sucking yet more political oxygen out of the West Wing.As the legal rope has tightened, his allies have gone on the offensive, questioning Mueller’s credibility. Allies have even floated the idea that Mueller may be fired.last_img read more

first_imgThis week was meant to be an exciting one for both Blizzard and World of Warcraft players. Yesterday the Warlords of Draenor expansion launched, bringing with it a number of new features that make the lapsed subscribers think “maybe I’ll go play for a month” and end up staying several. But the launch has been overshadowed in the US by a massive DDoS attack.Blizzard has been dealing with unexpected stability issues overnight related to just how many players are trying to login and their concentration within zones. That has led to queues for players trying to gain access and understandably a lot of frustration. But the biggest cause of latency on North American servers has been a confirmed Distributed Denial of Service attack.The attack is thought to have started in China and has been large enough to cause servers to time out, players to disconnect, anfour hour period of downtime is currently in progress (5am – 9am PST) while Blizzard tries to solve the stability issues being caused by the combination of a very large player load and a DDoS. Such a combination is rare and therefore it’s not surprising WoW’s infrastructure is struggling to cope.The advice for anyone eager to play the new content, or indeed just carry on playing their MMO of choice today, is simply to wait. Hopefully the DDoS will stop before the end of the day and the server update will mean it won’t be a factor over the weekend when even more players will have time to sample Warlords of Draenor.last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: In a bid to make people of all ages aware of different social issues, the Kolkata Police has taken up a unique step and decorated the walls of Kasba police station with beautiful paintings.The paintings convey various messages on different social issues. All the paintings have one common feature, which is the presence of a little dog through whom the messages are spread. It has been shown in the painting how the small dog is stopping a girl from crossing a road by flouting traffic norms. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsAgain, there is a painting on a wall in which the necessity of planting trees has been depicted and in another one, the necessity of keeping our surroundings clean has been shown.The main idea behind taking the step is to make the police station friendly to children and citizens alike. Residents of the area have appreciated the move of the police and stated that all the police stations in the city should be decorated with such art.It may be mentioned that besides taking the step of making the police station child friendly, the Kolkata Police has already set up child friendly corners (CFC) at different police stations. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedThe CFCs were set up for distressed children, where they will not get panicked seeing policemen in uniform in front of them. There are CFCs in Ultadanga, Karaya and Tollygunj police stations. The CFCs are run by the Kolkata Police in collaboration with an NGO that mainly works for children.CFCs are also decorated similarly to create a soothing atmosphere for distressed children, as studies have revealed that they get panicked upon seeing policemen in uniform and it leaves a deep impact on their life.last_img read more

first_imgMexico City, Mexico — Mexico’s Secretary of Tourism says it is necessary to legalize the use of marijuana to combat security, adding that it is a major topic in the upcoming July 1 elections.The Secretary of Tourism of Mexico, Enrique de la Madrid, has returned to the topic, insisting that the country legalize marijuana, noting that each state should make its own decision.It is the second time in which the minister delves into the issue in the middle of the electoral campaign. In January, he proposed to regularize consumption to stop the rampant violence in Baja California Sur and Quintana Roo, a pronouncement that generated huge controversy between the Mexican political class and society.“I think that in Mexico we should move toward a regulation at the state level,” he said in an interview with Reuters in which he adds that he does not think it “logical” to use funds to persecute consumers of this substance when they should be used to combat kidnapping, rape or murder.“Maintaining marijuana in illegality is giving money to drug traffickers,” he says. “And with that money what these gentlemen do is that they bribe more police, buy more weapons and are more violent,” the senior official says.De la Madrid says, “If you want to kill criminal groups you have to weaken them,” by eliminating their sources of financial income.“One of the ways is to legalize drug use. Some say it is not true. Yes it is true, it is logical,” he insisted.Enrique de la Madrid said that to combat insecurity in tourist sites, it is necessary to regulate the use of drugs such as marijuana and strengthen police forces.The legalization of marijuana has become one of the star themes of the upcoming presidential elections. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has always maintained that Mexico and the United States should not pursue divergent policies in this matter.Many security experts question whether the increase in violence is related specifically to marijuana trafficking, where tourist hot spots such as Los Cabos and Cancun both saw deaths increase last year.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgChild commissioner Leda Koursoumba on Monday stressed the need for a policy change concerning the ban on parents or guardians being present when minors undergo medical examinations in state hospitals.Speaking after a meeting before the House human rights committee, Koursoumba said MPs heard the views of the health ministry, state pediatricians and child psychologists.“There was a very important conclusion,” she said, adding that they agreed “that the general rule must be to allow the presence of parents.”“Of course there are exceptions that will be decided by the doctor – where for example the parent’s mental state may not allow them to contribute to the best interest of the child – but all these must, as we have suggested, be established through a protocol,” she said.The committee asked the health ministry to draft the protocol in cooperation with the child commissioner. The two sides said they will inform the committee on the task’s progress after the summer.“This is a very positive development that will also benefit our children,” Koursoumba said.Committee chairwoman, DISY MP Stella Kyriakidou, said everyone agreed that a protocol must be put in place clearly defining a child’s right to have their parents on their side when undergoing medical examinations.Kyriakidou said the matter will be revisited by October. You May LikeInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesNew Rule in Rowland Heights, California Leaves Drivers FumingInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
